German City Council Wants Meat At Vegetarian Festival


Good morning. I'm David Greene. Remember this woman?


UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Where's the beef?

GREENE: Wendy's commercial, 1984 - and it's sort of like the question members of city council are asking in a German city. Where's the sausage? There's a festival in April, and the environmental group running it has made it all vegetarian - sacrilege to some Germans. Council members want the region's famous pork sausage sold as well. A politician supporting the festival admits the veggie theme has been a kick in the guts. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
